You might know comedian Tez Ilyas from his TV appearances on shows such as Mock The Week and The Last Leg, but odds are you won’t know anything about his life as a kid.

Join Ilyas as he celebrates the release of his teenage memoir by taking you on a guided tour of his childhood growing up as a British-Asian Muslim in post-Thatcher Blackburn.

From running into muggers and dodging arranged marriages, to unlikely sexual experiences at the gym and getting a front-row seat at cultural race riots, Ilyas’ hilarious and often personal debut book leaves no stone unturned when discussing both his family life and 90s Britain.
